Student Enrollment Process - Online Application

The Berkley School District is excited to offer to our incoming families the option of completing their child's enrollment entirely through this secure online enrollment application.  Families may now upload all required residency and student information to complete their child's enrollment in the new document upload section within the application.  Required items may be uploaded via scanned documents from your computer, cell phone, or tablet.  You may also take a digital photo from your cell phone and upload the image to the documentation section of the application.  Families may also provide information for multiple children if they are enrolling siblings within the same online application.  Once all information has been verified, families will receive an email from the enrollment department confirming your child's enrollment is complete.  

If you have any questions you can email our Central Enrollment Secretary, Lesli Wyatt, at lesli.wyatt@berkleyschools.org
